Tyson Chandler to Dallas: Bobcats and Raptors Can't Get It Done.

CHARLOTTE, NC - APRIL 26: Tyson Chandler #6 of the Charlotte Bobcats looks to pass the ball after grabbing a rebound against the Orlando Magic at Time Warner Cable Arena on April 26, 2010 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The Magic defeated the Bobcats 99-90 to complete the four game sweep.

Due to second guessing on the part of Michael Jordan it seems that the deal that would have sent Jose Calderon and Reggie Evans to the Bobcats has fallen through.

Jordan it seems was reluctant to give up Tyson Chandler in the deal.

(Jordan took very little time as it has been reported on yahoo sports that Chandler has been traded to Dallas for Eric Dampier, Matt Carroll and Eduardo Najera)

Chandler confirmed to a Yahoo sports correspondent that he was told he would be traded on Monday.

As it stands now, it seems that the plan has changed.

Bryan Colangelo was eager to push the trade through, but unfortunately, the Raptors might have to look elsewhere to find the Center they desperately need.

The Raptors will still go ahead with the deal that will send Hedo Turkoglu to the Suns for guard Leanrdo Barbosa.

I would expect that if the Bobcats won’t take Calderon and Evans, Colangelo will certainly look for another suitor for the pair.
